BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: Sahti

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Ancient Ale is a modern take on a 9th-century Finnish beer.

The wort for Sah'tea is caramelized over white-hot river rocks, and the beer is fermented with a German weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged from the Finnish countryside, Sah'tea is flavored with black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and black pepper.

The spicing is subtle and balanced, and Sah'tea is a highly-quaffable, truly unique brew with a full mouthfeel.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Looks exactly like syrupy iced tea.

Smell: Raspberry tea and lots of yeast. The latter makes this nice.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Flavor is mostly sour cranberries. More yeast, which gives it a superb mouthfeel. Did I mention the yeast?

Overall: I only wish it had more juniper berries in the flavor, but it's still a great beer.
